Awhile ago on one of my money saving Tuesday posts I talked about having your own garden. We try each year to grow our vegetables in the summer. As you read here I am not blessed with a green thumb. I don't necessarily kill everything I touch, but I am not blessed with the talent of a blooming garden in any way.
From my original list of things to plant in the garden the following have made the transition and are beginning to grow well:
The lettuce is planted but not growing yet, the peppers failed miserably (but we will be buying a few plants to add to our garden soon) and the pumpkins are non-existant.
I got out there and weeded the other day, which was quite interesting at 33 weeks pregnant! but it was worth it if my garden grows. My goal is that I will have enough vegetables out of my garden that I can not only decrease my grocery bill but also try my hand at freezing and canning this year.
Here are some not-so-great pictures of the plants before I got them into the garden. The beans grew the best and the tomatos did pretty well. So far nothing that was transferred outside is dying!
